What I think I read about 11/30/73 years ago is they weren't so much late on that date as unaware a gig was scheduled. It wasn't till they hit Boston, or at least the Music Hall to sound check, that they learned they were due to perform on the 30th. Amazing that as late in the game as this date they could still have these early-era type mixups on when and/or where they were scheduled to play.
Then of course in true Dead fashion the gig, despite it's late start as all waited around for the crew to set the stage up, ends up geting enshrined as a commercial release along with 12/2 from the same venue a coupla nights later.

They opened with Morning Dew. If there's a better way to say "our bad, let's make up for lost time," I think that's it. And then HCS>WRS>Dark Star Jam>Eyes in the second set. Talk about recovering from a misstep! Plus, I've always loved the tone of DP14- I was immediately struck by the warmth of the recording when I bought it years ago.
